|« Still outnumbered 2-1||Reversible karma »|
Our 31st wedding anniversary came during the holidays. Our son was coming home. Our daughter was having finals. We were in and out of town. The days and nights were really busy. One night we started off to do two errands. We planned to have a quiet anniversary dinner afterwards. The two errands took longer than expected, and one of them got us both a bit agitated. The mood was not right for a romantic dinner. So we put off celebrating our anniversary until after the New Year.
My Honorable Husband - he really is honorable by the way. I blew out a tire on the way to work today. Shredded it. Picture a cartoon character after a TNT explosion. But HH keeps the spare tire filled, and he keeps our AAA coverage up to date. I didn't have to struggle with lug nuts in the cold rain. See why I love him. But I have digressed.
My Honorable Husband said he was taking me out last night, and he wanted me to pick the restaurant. I chose Outback Steakhouse. I picked it for several reasons. I can cook beef in a lot of tasty ways, but I can't cook a steak in my oven that compares with a steakhouse steak. But most steakhouses serve their steak with salad and baked potato. Outback has vegetables. It also has fish entrees, so HH wouldn't be left eating something he didn't like for dinner.
At the risk of another digression, it has always interested me that HH never really liked steak. Long before I heard of the blood type diet, when we would go out to eat, I would order steak and he would order seafood.
With my steak I chose a baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli. It was delicious. HH had grilled stuffed redfish and broccoli. If we had stopped there, we would have had a very beneficial meal. But HH wanted a dessert. "We used to share a piece of cheesecake on our anniversary," he complained. I answered that a dessert would be fine, but not cheesecake. I think my cheesecake far surpasses restaurant cheesecake. I made it for our son at Christmas, and the memory was still too fresh. We shared an apple cobbler instead. It was really good - way too much sugar, of course, but really good.
